Patrons attending Magical Candlelight Christmas-town 2023 in the Travis College Hill National Register Historic District may enjoy a free a horse-drawn classic carriage ride that will bring them to Downtown Garland for Christmas on the Square being held simultaneously on Thursday, Dec. 7.
The carriage will load at the intersection of 11th Street at Avenue C in Travis College Hill before taking patrons over six blocks to Downtown Garland, delivering them to Avenue A at Sixth Street, and picking them up there as well.
Magical Candlelight Christmas-town 2023 will feature a tour of homes in Garland's Travis College Hill and Embree, a photo-op booth featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus, a live nativity, costumed interpreters, hot cocoa and hot dogs, and other activities.
The event is funded in part by a grant from the Garland Cultural Arts Commission and the City of Garland Cultural Arts Division. A total of about 20 benefactors — both corporate and individual donors and sponsors — have made the carriage rides for event patrons possible.
Tickets are available online for $20 before 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7, and $25 after 4 p.m. on the day of the event.
